Spent two nights with a group of friends in mid November, great location, great food, attentive staff, very friendly and helpful Manager, - always available BUT the rooms were just not up to the mark. After the experience you feel a little short changed considering that the rates being charged are on the higher side compared to the other facilities... More

The resort reflects the essence of the city - quite, relaxing and laid back. Tastefully done rooms ... I stayed at Baywatch (great interiors and colors) and mud house (rustic feeling, but could have been cleaner and missing hammocks). Food is great (Pondicherry chicken a must try). Only thing to keep in mind is that its a few kms away... More

This was the second time I visited the Dune resort mainly because I loved the concept of "village" huts without snobbishness of five star resorts. 1) We saw lots of rats this time around. in the middle of the night, you can hear and see them attacking every possible thing. If you have kids and not a brave heart, please... More

From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, the staff here were happy and great to be with. This is a funky and quirky place away from the madness of the town. Every cottage is unique and really nice. Great spa nice food. Could not fault it. Recommended😊

We spent 3 days in a family house at the resort. After the hustle and bustle of Chennai, this was just idyllic. A car was sent from the resort to chauffeur us to the resort which was wonderful and very good value. The check in was smooth and very friendly. And within a couple of minutes, we were unpacked in...

I visited the place for my first anniversary end of Nov '14. Let me begin with the booking process, the person handling my booking (Mr. Murugaian) was very polite and helpful and what I found very helpful was the different options he proposed to me for variety of packages. The communications through emails regd the taxi numbers, date of travels... More

We visited this place for our anniversary. Given it was pet friendly, we took our dog along as well. The property is quite well taken care of. From the rooms, landscaping, pool condition, spa...everything seemed quite good. The room's DVD player and one bed lamp was dysfunctional the entire time.There weren't too many people when we visited, which made the... More
